In the morning news on November 20, ifixit, a famous dismantling organization, brought the dismantling of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro equipped with apple M1 chip. The internal design of these two M1 Macs is basically the same as the previous Intel models, but there are also some highlights.
Disassembly of M1 chip MacBook Air and MacBook Pro
First of all, let's take a look at the MacBook Air. The biggest change of the MacBook Air equipped with M1 chip is the fan less design. Under the heat dissipation material on the left is the SOC chip, which may export heat through the d-side metal. The original fan has been replaced by an aluminum expander on the left side of the motherboard.
Fanless design is the biggest change
With the exception of the new motherboard and radiator, the interior design of the MacBook Air is almost the same as the previous product. Ifixit said the maintenance procedures "may remain almost completely unchanged.".
However, ifixit is still concerned about the MacBook Air fanless design, which may prolong the cooling time of the fuselage, and the stability of continuous output high performance is a hidden danger.
As for the MacBook Pro, since the appearance is almost the same as the previous model, ifixit joked that it had to be checked carefully to avoid removing the wrong machine.

The internal changes of the MacBook Pro are less than those of the MacBook Air. Ifixit is happy to see that there are no major changes within the MacBook Pro, which means that some parts can be used with the previous generation of products, greatly reducing the maintenance cycle and cost.
In the previous media evaluation, the excellent heat dissipation of MacBook Pro with M1 chip left a very deep impression on the media, and the fan could hardly hear the sound in operation.
Ifixit is also curious about whether macbook pro's fans will have any unusual design or new cooling technology.
The fan is the same as the 13 inch Intel version
As a result, the fan design of the M1 MacBook Pro is exactly the same as the 2020 Intel version of the 13 inch MacBook Pro. Obviously, the M1 chip is excellent, and there are no other factors.
Both products are usedAppleM1 chip
Ifixit also points out that although the internal structure of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro is almost the same as the Intel version, they do carry the bright silver M1 chip with the apple logo, next to which is Apple's integrated memory chip.
Finally, ifixit says that integrated memory makes M1 MAC maintenance more difficult. It should be noted that the M1 MAC is not equipped with the T2 chip designed by apple, because the security function of T2 has been directly integrated into the M1 chip.
